Chocolate profiterole Cake are a mouth-watering and tempting dessert of French origin but nowadays prepared all over the world and especially in Italy.

They are cream puffs filled with whipped cream and covered with a delicious dark chocolate ganache. They are usually arranged in a very scenic, pyramid-like way: the chocolate is dripped so as to totally cover them and hold them together once cooled.

The preparation is quite long, especially the cream puffs, which need some extra attention, but by proceeding slowly you get a very unique result.

With our doses you get about 70 cream puffs, enough for 8 persons, but you can decide to make them larger. As always, feel free to share your results with us and leave a comment!

First let's take care of making the puffs: in a small saucepan, heat the water with a pinch of salt [picture 1], then add the butter and melt it, stirring occasionally [picture 2].


When the butter is fully melted, we pour in the flour [picture 3] and continue stirring until the mixture sets and pulls away from the sides of the saucepan [picture 4].
Then we remove from the heat and let it cool.


After the necessary time has elapsed, we add the eggs [picture 5] to the mixture: let us combine one at a time and do not add the next one until it has completely blended into the mixture, which should have a smooth consistency. Finally, we add a pinch of baking soda [picture 6].


We transfer the mixture to a pastry bag and make, on a baking tray lined with baking paper, mounds about the size of a walnut [picture 7].
With wet fingers we then gently crush the tips of the puffs [picture 8].
We bake in a preheated ventilated oven at 180° C (356 ° F) for about 15 minutes-remember to put in a thickness of a few centimeters so that the oven door remains slightly open. The puffs should approximately double their volume.


Meanwhile, let's prepare the ganache: heat the cream with the granulated sugar in a saucepan [picture 9].
When it comes to a boil, we add the chopped dark chocolate: we turn off the heat and let it melt, stirring with a hand whisk [picture 10].
Let it cool.


We then assemble the profiteroles: using a pastry bag, we fill the puffs with whipped cream [picture 13], dip them in the ganache on one side and arrange them on a serving dish in the classic pyramid shape.
Finally, we drizzle the chocolate ganache on top to coat everything [picture 14].
Leave in the refrigerator to solidify for at least an hour, decorate as desired with a few clumps of cream, then serve our Chocolate Profiterole Cake.



- To prevent puffs from deflating as soon as the oven is turned off, let them cool in the oven after turning it off.
- You can soften the chocolate ganache with whipped cream if you prefer it to be softer and fluffier.
